Garbage Pile; 1988-1989

In 1989, the skateboarders in Clinton and Wapella, IL got their hands on a video camera. Over a few days that summer, we filmed what later came to be known as “Garbage Pile”, or “Ryan’s Bare Ass”.

This is the resulting product. Before any judgement is passed and comments are thrown up, bear in mind that this was 1989, in Clinton, IL, a 8000 person town in the middle of a corn field. There was no internet, no youtube, no simple way to learn tricks outside of a magazine. There was no reasonable way to edit this video, it was all done in camera.
